Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When you are playing a game, can you save your data? can you put music, video or game demos on your hdd? have you try reformatting your hard drive? go to settings>system settings>restore ps3 systems once there u can start to reformat your hard drive. note it will erase everything you have on the system. and if u downloaded any games from the psn you can retrieve them under the download management. you just have to redownload them. before reformatting though try this method.
turn the system off from the back.
turn it back on. (it should be in standby mode now)
press the power button and keep your finger on it till it beeps three times. (its about a second apart.) and turns off.
take your finger off of the power button and press it again.
this time keep your finger on it till it beeps twice in quick succession and take your finger off.
it should tell you to connect a controller with a usb
once u do i'll give u a menu.
select option #3 and let it finish
this option will fix most minor software side problems
if this don't help u may want to reformatting your hard drive and hope u don't have to replace it. and before u do reformatt if u have any game saves u want to save u can copy those over to a usb flash card.
replacing the hard drive is easy. you just have to be careful not to strip the head of the screw thats holding it in place.
